  • Warm-Based Glaciers
    • Mainly temperate
    • Water present throughout and under the ice acts as lubricant
    • Greater rates of movement and erosion
    • Water can exist even below freezing due to warmth from high pressures due to the weight of overlying ice and from friction at the sides and base
    • Found in mountains at lower latitudes but higher altitudes
